Build it, Paint it, Play with it!

Woodworking Kits for Kids are a great way to bring the family together while making education fun.

It's a way to spend time with your children as they learn new skills. The use of real tools that are used to build projects for the family is challenging and interactive, encouraging critical thinking through hands on activities.

With each new project children increase their learning ability and advance to new levels in woodworking, craft and design. Play time turns into valuable lessons that the child can take into adulthood, while making memories with their family.

Here are a few recommended selections of pleased parents. All of the products can be found on Amazon.

Wooden Picture Box

A picture box is something that I've enjoyed having on my desk for years. The center cup area is perfect for pens, dry paintbrushes, make-up brushes, kitchen utensils or any tall item for that matter.

One thing to note is that although it does come with sandpaper and glue, there are additional tools required that do not come with it such as a drill, hammer or file.
